i grew up between germany and the states. i've lived in austin, new york, san francisco, paris, london, hamburg and for the past 3+ years i've been laying down my roots in berlin.

what doesn't kill you only makes you stronger.
you are not here to love the world; you are here to be love in the world.
you can only be young once, but you can be immature forever.
